Envision Energy Gets 2000 MW Wind Turbine Orders in India

Chinese wind turbines and energy management software provider, Envision Energy has announced that it has been awarded a 2000 MW (2GW) wind turbine order in India.

Envision has said that a total of 596 wind turbines, all manufactured in Envision’s India factory, will be delivered by the end of 2023.

The official statement of Envision held that it will supply and commission its state-of-the-art EN156/3.3 wind turbines for the projects. EN 156/3.3 has a 156 meter rotor – the largest in the country. This rotor is coupled with a 3.3MW generator and a hub height of 140m. This design is uniquely suited to maximize energy produced from the low wind regimes predominant in the country.

The statement also reveals that Envision had invested $25M to establish its 1200 MW-capacity nacelle and hub assembly plant at Pune in 2018. To meet the increased market demands, Envision will be ramping up to double the current capacity. Envision is also building a blade factory in India, which is expected to be completed by Q1 of 2023.

Envision informed that its existing projects in India, the 198 MW Khagashree wind farm and 35 MW Kagvard wind farm equipped with EN- 131/2.5MW wind turbines, have been in operation since May and October 2019 respectively.

RPV Prasad, Country Head – India Region, said, “Envision India is proud to contribute towards India’s commitment to achieve 500 GW and 50% energy requirement from renewable energy sources by 2030. With the growth of our wind and energy storage business, we are expecting to recruit more than 300 employees locally to meet the growing needs of the country as well as the newer markets of the Asia Pacific region.”

According to Kane Xu, Managing Director of Envision India and Global Vice President, “We are delighted with the confidence our partner in India has in us, and we are proud to continue delivering our best solutions in India.”

Early in the month, Envision Group announced that it has signed a Letter of intent (LOI) with Impact Energy Asia Development Limited (IEAD) for the supply of wind turbines to the iconic 600MW Monsoon Wind Project in Lao PDR. Envision will be supplying 133 units of EN-171 wind turbines with a power rating of 4.51 MW for the said project.
